Q: Can my wife take my kids with false accusations
My wife and mother in law have made false accusations of being unsafe with me and of me “shaking” my babies. I’ve been cleared because it never happed. And now is trying to get restraining order so they can take my twin babies to Washington DC. They’ve contacted help on their end so I’m reaching out for help. I’m a marine stationed in Palm Springs and don’t know what to do. I have proof that my wife doesn’t want my kids and that she basically doesn’t like them but have turned it around. I don’t know why this is happening because we had no problems in past. Her mother has brainwashed her and controlling her. I have no idea what to do. I need help to figure out my rights and what to do.
A: The answer will depend on where your wife and children are located, because that is where you will have to take your stand. I am not a family law lawyer, and am only licensed to practice in California.
You can start by asking for help from the JAG Office at your marine base. You might ask your company commander to help you with that referral. There are resources for active duty military to get the kind of help you need.
Find a local family law lawyer to advise you if you haven't done so already.
